I broider my life into the frame;
t broider with dreams my tapestryj '
Here in a httle lonely room
I am master of earth and sea, ��� ''
And the planets come to me.
I broider my life into the frame;
I broider my love thread upon thread.
' The world goes by, with its glory and sharae;
Crowns are bartered, and blood is shed;
I sit and broider by dreams instead.
And the only -world is the -world of my dream*,
And-my weaving the only happiness, ,
For what is the world but what it seems.
And who knows but that God, beyond our guea,
Sits weaving words out of loneliness?

Mary Hart was the only daughter of,
the widow of Colonel Hart of-the.Indian service.
The colonel had been both soldier and
business man, and when he had been
killed in a jungle fight, soon after
Mary's birth, he had left his widow a
comfortable income.
She had come to America and settled
In one of the quiet New England sea-;
shore villages in a cozy cottage adjoin-1
ing the estate of Mrs. Dalton, who was
, an old school friend. The young people had grown up together and had
been friends since childhood.
Tom Dalton, a happy go lucky young
man, had inherited an independent in-'
come from his father and now, having
passed his finals at the law school, was
about to practice his profession in Boston. He loved Mary Hart with all his
heart, but in spite of himself he could
not be serious about his lovemaking,
though bound to win her.
And the little minx herself threw difficulties enough in the way by bringing
him sharply to account whenever ho attempted to broach the subject She
didn't propose to love or be loved, and
if she ever could bo so foolish it must
be a brave man.
"None but the brave deserve the fair,
. and you aren't brave. You know you
are not, sir."
Flood tide found them skimming.
down the bay on the natty little schoon-
er.Willie In a spanking breeze, jumping
at the sea like a mettlesome horse?
while Captain Doyle stood at the wheel
extolling her virtues to Mrs. Hart. The
young people were camped comfortably
on the deck at the windward side of
the mainmast.
?'-.'���'���Great, isn't it?" said Tom. ' "Now
what would you say to a lobster chow
der for dinner?"
it, Captain Doyle?"
"Fact, sure," said the ���kipper. "Me
an Mr. Dalton had a bit of a run down
to Elm last Tuesday. Tight ��� bit of
weather coming home, too."

British Barristers* Wles. '
The wigs worn in English courts were
formerly made of human hair, and it
is on record that the white hair1 of a
woman who lived to be 106 years old
was sold for that purpose for ��50. In
1827 the old form of powdered wig���
which was somewhat of a nuisance because the powder came off and the hair
frequently required recurling���was superseded by the horsehair wig.
Only about 100 of these legal ornaments are made annually. A good article will last for a quarter of a century, and, moreover, barristers do not
altogether appreciate new wigs, as they
suggest that the wearer is new to the
business and consequently has not had
much experience.
The cost varies from 1 to 12 guineas.
The former price purchases an ordinary article, while the latter is the sum
paid for what is known as a "full bottomed" wig, which is usually worn by
the leading barristers on the occasion
of a great trial. It is also the kind
which adorns the head of the speaker
of the house of commons.
Most of the horsehair is imported,
but tho home product is the best and Is
that used in the costliest wigs.���London Standard.

Library rules ordinarily forbid the removal of.valuable books and engravings
from the premises, so that there is trouble in obtaining photographic copies of
pictures or plates, the introduction of artificial light or even of a camera being
commonly prohibited., A method of getting over this 'difficulty which has been
tried recently with success is to..���coat? a
piece of cardboard with a phosphorescent
substance' and, after sufficient exposure
to the sun, place it fit .the back of the
picture to.be reproduced. ��� Then (supposing that the picture is in a book) a dry
plate is put against the face of it, and
the volume is closed. This can be managed very easily by manipulating the dry
plate under a cloth that covers the book.
Tho dry plate is allowed to remain from
IS to 60 minutes, according to the nature and thickness of the paper. Then it
is withdrawn, under the cloth as'before,
and put into a'dark box'for subsequent
development. It is stated by the inventor of this process that if films are used
instead of dry plates a las-ge number of
copies of different engravings in the same
book may be made at the same time.���

Its Quaint. Stagre Arrangements and
.the Sociable Audience.      '"'
\ As a rule; the only things that-fascinate ,the tourist in a Japanese play are
the quaintness of the- stage arrangements and. the weird uninlelligibility of
the acting..The stage is enormous, and the
actors reach.it by walking through the
audience on two' platforms extending
from the back-of ,the auditorium to the
footlights, properties are removed during the performance by attendants':in
black cloaks, who are supposed to he in-
' visible. u
As a rule, two long plays are presented
consecutively, with a tableau between,
and the performances begin at 10 in the
morning. You leave your shoes at one of
the many teahouses around tho theater
and enter your box to find it supplied
with a tobacco box, tea and'cakes, with
luncheon to come. The voices on the
stage at once strike you-as hard and artificial and either too, shrill or too gruff.
But the reason is plain. "The traditional
samisen, a three stringed guitar, follows
the performer like a curse from start to
finish. Unless he pitched his voice above
or below its notes he could not bo heard."a
There is no doubt of tho effect on the'
audience. Especially do tho wonderful
facial expressions of the' actors work upon the women. " A rush to the "tear-
room" during a pathetic passage-is quite
common. There the'susceptible playgoer
may weep her heart out in comfort.
As men and women are not allowed to
appear on .the same stage the female
parts are taken by men. On the other
hand, at some theaters where "the performers-are all women you may see male
parts sustained by actresses. - This is
only one among the many conventions
and restrictions which hamper the drama
in Japan. Another is the extraordinary
ascendency of the actor over the author.
A successful actor is the darling of the
people. Purses are thrown at his feet
as he walks toward the stage, and love
letters are sent to his dressing room, for
"the Japanese matinee girl is very susceptible." He may make ��3,000 in four
weeks. The author is only ono member
of a kind of committee which devises the
play, and his remuneration is trumpery.���

Gray nnd  Grey.
An investigator declares that "in Great
Britain the form 'grey* is the .more frequent in use, notwithstanding the authority of Johnson and later English lexicographers, who have all given the preference to "gray." In answer to questions as
to th'-'r practice the printers of The
Times stated that they always used the
form 'gray;' Messrs. Spottiswoode and
Messrs. Clowes always .used-.*grey;' other
eminent printing firms had no'fixed rule.
Many correspondents said that they had
used the two forms with a difference of
meaning or application, the distinction
most generally recognized being that
'grey' denotes a more delicate or a lighter tint than 'gray.' Others considered the
difference to be that 'gray' is a 'warmer'
color or that it has a mixture of red and
brown. There seems- to be nearly absolute unanimity as to the spelling of 'the
Scots Greys,' 'a pair of greys.'"

"This would be a good occasion for us
to havo some pictures made,", said Mr.
Jobson while down town with Mrs. Job-
son the other day. "It's been about eight
years since I was photographed, even if
you have had that operation performed
three or four times a year, and I don't
suppose I ever would face < a camera*
again if I had to make a separate expe-r
dition to a photograph ^gallery. What
kind will we have taken?"   .   ���
"Well, really," replied Mrs. Jobson in
a mildly demurring tone. "You know I
dressed so hurriedly �� and in such < old
things this morning on account of the
weather that I'd so much rather wait
until some other time, so that"���
"So .that you can prink and primp
yourself to look about 19, years of age, 1
suppose,"- snapped Mr. Jobson. "So that
you can get pictures taken that'll give
your'relatives out in the'far west the idea
that you're getting" two years younger every year and that at the present time you
look like a,young woman just out of Vas-
snr and about 42 years'younger than your
husband, eh? Is that your idea? Is
that"��� . ,   '     .
' "Not at-all." said Mrs. Jobson, "but it's
natural for a wonVan to like to look her
best when she's photographed, and"���"'
"Yes, but it's not natural for a woman
to,like to look natural when she's photographed," cut in Mr. Jobson.' "I suppose,
Mrs. Jobson, that there, are several hundred, photographs of you.' kicking���around,
the house, and not one of 'emi looks any
more like yon than I look like the Apollo
B.elvidere. They all look like fancy'pictures of actresses ;,who've "spent'.'several

without one/plea,- and'I' don't, want 'the
man that springs the camera on me to try
to bamboozle me into the idea that 1 look-
like* a* leading man ' in a society show.
We'll just sit for some photographs now,
Mrs.* Jobson, and I'll be willing,to���bet big
money that the pictures'll be the, most
natural we ever had taken, because we
haven't.lain awake nights trying to think'
out schemes for beautifying,ourselves andj
dec(?rating.ourselves to appear,as"we'are
not."    .i        , ���-*/���, ,
- Mrs. Jobson had j to agree, of course,
and, Mr. Jobson gave'her no'chance-to do
any surreptitious "making up."
��� "Now, sir," said he to the, photographer,
when' they   a'scended   to, the   operating
croom,;"lette  have no  foolishness  about*
this.   ,\*"7e're,plain" folks, and. we want to
be taken, just as we look  in  real  life,'-
without any idiotic ornamentation," .etc.,
In short, he?addressed .the operator just],
iu the mannerthat operators particularly
dislike on the part of sitters. .. /
Mrs. Jobson had the'first sitting, and
the operator took a lot of pains with her.
He gently applied the. powder puff to her
grayish hair so that the high light' would
bring it out in a sort of"Rembrandt effect,
and he also used a make up pencil upon
her eyebrows, Mr. "Jobson meantime waiting in the next room. Mrs. Jobson hastily
removed these evidences of "make up"
before the operator summoned Mr. Job-
eon for his sitting.
Mr. Jobson had certain Ideas of his
own as to how a photograph ought to be
taken which he did not hesitato'to express to the operator, who, only having
been taking photographic negatives for a
matter of a quarter of a century or so,
could not be expected to know much
about it. Mr. Jobson utterly declined to
permit the photographer to fix a head
-j-est" behind his head, and when the operator mildly suggested that Mr. Job-,
son might improve his appearance by
going to the glass and arranging his
somewhat tousled hair.Mr. Jobson was
quick to call him down.
"My hair is fixed- all right to suit me,"
he answered testily. ' "1 don't want to
look like an Italian barber. 1 don't
wear my.hair -plastered down nowadays,
aud I never will. I think I observed to
you that I wanted to be photographed the
way I look every day. Just you fire
ahead the way I'm sitting now, and
you'll make no mistake, so far as I'm
So the operator shrugged his shoul-
df-rs slightly, and get tint? the proper foci v ��n Mr. Jobson "-as--*he sat with his
sh "alders bent forward, his bair sticking
up and an expression of terrible ferocity
on his features, *-ie pressed the bulb and
told Mr. Jobson that that would be all
and that the proofs would be ready on
Mrs. Jobson was sitting in an easy
chair looking at the proofs and faintly
6miiing when Mr. Jobson came > home
from the office on Thursday afternoon.
She quickly erased the smilo from her
features and handed the proofs to Mr.
Jobson without a word. Mr. Jobson took,
them to a window and examined them.
Mrs.! Jpbson's were about the best pictures she-had ever had made. Both of
'the poses were easy and graceful, tlie
'lighting was admirable, and? in general
Mrs. Jobson showed up oh the proofs
as an exceedingly handsome and well
preserved woman. 'Mr? Jobson, having
declined the use of the head rest, had
moved when both of his negatives were
exposed, his attitude was that of a.man
with extremely rouna? shoulders, straining
to look through the bars of a prison cell,
and his tousled hair and vindictive expression added to the generally calamitous effect which the two proofs produced upon the beholder.
_Ir- Jobson examined his proofs for
half a minute."without a word with a
darkening countenance... Then be turned
to Mrs. Jobson with'an expression: of
awful calm.
"Madam." he said, "this is the end.
This is positively and finally the end.

'  In observing wild birds it has seemed  to me that they hunt food-about all  day long,' and In my"',fancy I >have  pictured them as often going to their  roosts at night with their hunger but-\  partly appeased.

This   has   been   my   experience  'and tbe experience of all  with.whom  I ha ve" con versed on'thc subject.   Given  , a mash in tho morning I hoy apparently  do not see the grain  thrown  in  litter  for them to scratch for.  ��������� With my first lot of, fowls I followed  the beaten paths given in poultry literature of tho day and fed ''all they  would clean up quickly" of mnsh in  the morning as' instructed. "Alb they  would clean up quickly" bothered m*v  a  bit,  for I-found  their appetites  to  I vary considerably, a pen of 12 fowls  cleaning up anywhere from "one to six  pounds, so that when making the mnsh  I was at a loss to" know how much  meal to use.

I have, made aud  ani making that, mistake. The result is  that I have been obliged to spend nearly $5,000 for buildings and appliances  to properly house and "separate so many  birds. So much capital cannot profitably be invested in breeding varieties  that may be classed as belonging strictly, to those that appeal to the fancy  without regard to utility. If you can  afford it, keep as many varieties of  bantams as you like, but do not "expect: ' "immense?'profits'.":-- for they are  not to be made in that way. 1 speak  from experience, for while I-sell every  year a very large number of birds at  good prices I still have to consider my  chickens as a hobby, to be settled for  like other hobbies, out of the proceeds  of more serious and less attractive  business enterprises.���������-A.

GEORGE BATHBONE  Hastings waited  not  to  argue    the,  (pro   and   con   of. that   question,' since  ���������he  "-.vas  quite  in  a  fever  to   continue  this  task.       He had   travelled     many  ���������weary   leagues,   had   encountered     in-  -numerable    perils      from  wild beasts  sand still  wilder men,  m  order to  enjoy .this  hour,; and  now  that   it had  ���������conic  his  whole being  thrilled     with  the sensation   of \ ictory such  as  but  .few   men   experience,   and   then   ��������� 'only  ���������once in* a lifetime.        '  Again he was on his knees, beside  ���������that most wonderful pile, which had  lain here'as if slumbering through,the  ���������a,sres���������again his ' eager hand chased  vlhe , glowing balls of color as they  ������������������rolled among the baser images, as  'though -playing a 'game of hide and  -seek. r <  rln the hunt these golden . vessels  were tossed aside as though representing little value, which was possibly /the truth when a comparison  ^ as'made with those gems of Ojihir,  such as' the Queen of Sheba might  have'brought as presents to Solomon  when she came with such pomp to'  tcs,t  his   wonderful  wisdom.  At last every, fugitive jewel.had  been successfully cornered and carefully captured. There were two small  ,-bags of them, bags tliat bulged 'with  STAches as their ^like had certainly  ���������never done before., for seldom in the  'history of Mother Earth could so  ���������much wealth ha\c be^ti comj ressed-  'into so small a com'pass. '  up���������from one end of the chamber to  another it ,was echoed/ and hustled  back and forth with the rapidity, of  a tennis ball in a hard fought championship  game.  ." It was as if the grave assemblage  of hideous old gods had- beom given"  the breath of, life, and were mocking  the merry cow-puncher, whose merriment came' to a speedy end.  -At, the same moment, as though  there might be some connection be--  tweon the mad, rebounding echo, and  the spirits that haunted the ruined  temple     of  Azor,   the   brilliant   light  served   them   so   well  all  not  in  which  had  this  while,  suddenly  went  out,  even'   deigning  a  parting   flicker  farewell.    <  Exclamations arose, for the first  thought that flashed over them was  that there might be something supernatural about it all ��������� they had  heard of a curse being left with a  hidden treasure, -a poisonous vapor  perhaps, fastened in a Pandora box,  that would immediately finish any  one who  dared  open it. (  All of them were plain, practical  men of good common sense, and when  the first shock had departed, they  found themseives ready to laugh at  1he thrill ���������> which had involuntarily-  swept over their frames under' the  impulse  of that  queer- coincidence.

CHAPTER  XTI.  * OX THE r.OAO  TO  HADES.      ,   ,  '"When he had thus ma de sure of the  -quart or so of glistening gems that  mayv.ha\ej once bedecked the form of  the ugliest of lflols, Hex lound that  he could condescend to smaller  things.  'The queer images and vessels fashioned out of pure gold claimed his  attention. Their    intrinsic      value  most be quite a snug do I. if one  could but con\e,\ them t_o tb.p busy  marts of men, where such things  were1 scrambled for v. ith the most  feverish  eagcrne&s.  Really, he was surprised  to see how  - calmly" he  could  --. lew   such  a . collection of the most'precious  of me'tnls .  ibut then when one has aheady dined  ���������upon the most evquioite ot  \ lands, he  ns  able  to     look     upon   an   ordinary  ���������least without emotion,  though at an-  ���������othcr     time   the  sight   of   the     same  fgprcad might sot his  mouth  to   wat-  -ering.  "Picking up a couple of the? least  ���������^cumbersome of the image1?, he lugged  "them out of the receptacle and planted them at t'ie foot of the' working  ���������artist, who hailed ?in his labor long  ������notigh to vouchsafe the antiques a  scrui mixing  glance  and   then  say*  "Found 'em all right, eh���������well,  they are daisies, now, I'll admit.

I'm too much engaged, you  ���������see���������really, wouldn't put a stop to  .my sketch for all the gold in Africa,  Haggard and his King Solomon's  -mine to the contrary," a/id he scratched away for dear life.  Bludsoc was quite ready to help,  ���������and the others al="o came quickly to  the front, so that in an exceedingly  ���������brief space of time the little pile of  golden relics had l-cen switched from  the interior of tlie old barb.irun god  to a spot in the middle of the chamber.  J nrrt   Urmio  had   finished   his cketcb  ���������of the remarkable three-headed deity  .and condescended to inspect the col-  ,loci ion with the e\ e of one who might  sbe called a connoisseur.  And   forsooth,   it   was  a  sight  well  "--'orthy   the   attention   of   prmee    or  .peasant,     a   bra\ e   accumulation     of  quaint   \essels   that   bore  such    mute  'though  eloquent  testimony  regarding  "the cunning and sUill of ancient gold-  ��������� beaters   in   the  daj s   when   the  Phar-  <.aohs reigned over Egypt  The professor actually   went    down  -.on his knees before the treasures, as  .-did the reprobate children of Israel  .before the golden calf.     To him    the  :-intrinsic part .was as tinkling brass  --.vhen placed in comparison with their  ���������amazing"'historical.-value.  Even  the cowboys were  quite tak-  .en  with  the  oddity  of  some     among  '.the images,  and Red Eric  burst   into  -a loud laugh as  he snatched  up  one  -''that appeared to be half way between  a gorilla and a -man, with a certain  suspicious leaning toward the Egyptian  style   of sculpture  as   witnessed  iin the temple of Luxor.  That  laugh, 'hoy/  weird  it sounded  ������������������a dozen tongues seemed to take   it  Brit-  we'll soon ha\e plenty  of  Then' a match" crackled���������puff! ' the  darkness was shattered, and in its  stead 'came that same ,dazzling<- light  which had before "permeated almost ">  every crack and cranny in the great  low  ceiled chamber. , v >  Hastings uttered"an exclamation.  "What now?" demanded,the  ,'on, recognizing In this cry a note of  alarm, and perhaps believing Rex'  had been shaken by a sudden'winnowing of wings overhead,' as * some  gigantic bat beat the air, - frightened  at the.new'-fiood of light.  "Yonder���������I ^could swear-"i saw a  crouching figure, a giant' black, suddenly spring out of sight behind that  leaning-god."      ' ,  All eyes were instantly glued upon  the spot he indicated, but no sign remained of the phantom figure Rex  believed-he had seen..  < - ������������������  "Possibly' a delusion," ,said' Lord  Bruno, as he bent over the treasure-  trove and examined some of the queer  conceits that were fac-similes of the  barbaric gods with which' they vjpre*'.  even  then surrounded     .,   '  Rex     had    some      good    stubborn  Scotch  blood   in  his' disposition,   and'  having  taken  hold  it"was  hard    for  him to  let  go.     He shook  his   head,  in a negative way, saying- '    \  -.-'"'Of course- that would be a possibility, but' I am far' from willing to  admit that my eyes deeehed me.  I-Tere is Bludsoe���������perhaps he too saw-  it -vanish like the smoke on a windy  day���������how is it,  .Tim'?"       '  The cowboy confessed that he ,had  been looking* in another quarter when  the light resumed sway,'and therefore failed to sec what Rex mentioned, as no sign of its presence hovered  about the spot when he did fasten his  eyes upon the angle. \  "Still, it's an easy thing to make a,  dead certainty of it. "Come with me,  Mr. Hastings, and unless the thing  of e*-il possessed the wings of a bat  we'll be sure to discover some sign  of" his   presence,   I swear."  Rex instantly understood what he  meant to imply. The-dust-that lay  so-.promiscuously around would betray the lact whether a human being  had entered the chamber in that  quarter  or  not  Jim Bludsoe, ere trusting himself  in such a subterranean trap as the  black temple of Azor, had prepared  for an emergency by securing several  billets of wood to serve as torches  should the occasion warrant.  Possibly they were not equal to  the liglvtwood flambeaux he might  have secured had he been given a  better opportunity, but they promised to answer  the purpose.  One of these he now dipped in the  glowing furnace on the pan. It immediately took fire, and while its  puny flame held no comparison with  the intense glow of tho flash-light,,  still he  was  satisfied  Rex followed at his heol< leaving  the others busily engaged in stowing  the golden images that' were worth  five times their weight in sovereigns,  into a couple of leather saddle bags,  fetched for the purpose.  Straight over to the spot designated bv the ad\enturer Jim Bludsoe  stalked, holding the blazing torch  above his head.  Hex, e\ en while quivering from excitement, could not but remark what  a wonderfully fine picture the athletic cowboy made as he moved on, for  you see Rex had been somewhat of  an artist in days gone by, and once  that spirit finds lodgment in a man  it no\ or leaves him.  A dozen strides and Bludsoe was  at the spot���������he swept hi-3, torch in  advance as he bent low. Almost immediately Ilex heard him give an exclamation, and from its exultant  ring- he knew in advance that his sua-  T.t-ioiona   wore 'confirmed..'

He was, however,  a fortunate rogue- When Henry VI] T.  suppressed the, monasteries and drove  the monks from, their nests, the title,  deeds of the Abbey of Mells/were demanded by the. commissioners. ' The  -Abbot of Glastonbury r determined  that he would send them to London,  and;'as the documents were very valuable, and the_ road infested <*- with  thieves,, ity was difficult /to get, them  to the metropolis-safely. To accom-  'plish this end, he" devised a* very in-  genius plan. He ordered a savory pie  to be made, and inside he put* the  documents ��������� the finest filling a pie  ever had'��������� and entrusted this dainty  to a lad'named Horner to carry up'  to " London to deliver safely into  tho hands,for whom it was intended.  ,But the journey was long and the  day cold,' and the boy was hungry,  and the pie was tempting, and' the  chance of detection was small. Lo  the boy broke off a piece of the "pie,  and beheld a parchment within. He  pulled it forth,1 innocent enough,  wondering how it could haver found,  its way there, tied up in pastry, and  arrived in town,-The parcel was, delivered, but the title deeds of Molls  Abbey were'missing.--'The fact was  that    Jack    had them in' his pocket.  .These were the juiciest plums in, tho  pie. Great was the rage1 of the    com-  .missioners, and-heavy the vengeance  dealt out to the monks. But Master  Jack' 1 Horner kept-his secret,   ;   and  -when .peaceable times were restored  he claimed'the, estates'and* "received  them.

Y,       '' ' ,/  Slate pencils were ^formerly all  from solid^ slate, just .as it- is  from the earth, but pencils so made  were- objected' to. on .account ,of the  ���������grit whica'they contain,- and which  would-scratch tho slate. To~ overcome this difliculty, an ingenious pio-  cess" <thas been devised by which the  slate is 'ground to a very fine powder, all grit" and foreign substance  removed, and , the powder^ bolted  through-silk cloth in much the same  way in. which flour is bolted. The  powder is then made into dough, and  this dough , is ^subject to a very  heavy hydraulic "pressure,' . 'which  "presses the.pencil��������� out. the' required  shape nnd diameter/ but in .lengths  of'���������'about three feet. While yet "soft*  the<t pencils ,are" cut 'into the desired'  lengths and set out to dry m the  open air. After^they are thoroughly  dry, the pencils are placed in^kilns,"*.  where they receive the proper temper.  Pencils made 'in_this manner are not  only free from all grit' and of������--uni~  lorm hardness, but are stronger than  those Y cut out ,-of solid slate. For  these reasons they have superseded  the old kind. ..Over twenty-hve millions of these pencils were made and  sold in 1899 by one American ,. concern  in  Chattanooga  pher in the person of a Broadway conductor.

The Black Bull, Hoi born,  is one of  the last survivors of famous old London    inns, and that house,  too,      is  doomed.

It has taken  vohtit i���������riw fcfty  years  to  accomplish  its     down  fall. The Black Bull was established  about 260,years ago, and from it  for many years the stage coaches  which journeyed to the eastern counties started. Every morning punctually at 10 o'clock the Cambridge coach  departed. The house was a fine specimen of the old-fashioned inn, with a  gallery outside the first floor  over the       yard        which        the  wmgs enclosed, in that ��������� respect resembling the famous Talbot  inn in the Borough, and the Four  Swans, Bishopgate. For many years  however, this courtyard has not  formed part of the inn, and the rooms  m which so many generations of travelers have slept have been let out  for lodgings ���������  In the old daj's  of ITolborn valley,  with Snowhills rising on the east and  ITolborn    hill    on the    west,  when a  'drag had  to  be placed  on     omnibus  Called Down tho Corporal.  <��������� With great trouble a small body oi  men were busy hoisting, a heavy log  to,the top of the blockhouse-    that  ���������was  being repaired/ after an assault  in one of ,the" campaign's of the .War  of  American Independence?  ;As the .log swung "to-and fro, rthe-  voice of the little man was .heard encouraging  the.workers  with'"Heave  away!
